Scorpion mommy needs a lot of attention to take care of her babies because their exoskeletons are still soft and wobbly, and sometimes it’s confusing to manage all those limbs at once.

Please full view, it’s detailed.

This is Bean. She is a Regal Jumping Spider (Phidippus regius). I’ve had her since she was very wee. She amazes me every single day with her quirkiness and curiosity. I happen to think she’s the cutest spider on the planet… but I’m a tad biased. I can’t stop taking photos of her though… that face!!!

AS: SO CUTE!

This beautiful yellow cape is an awesome work of art and patience. It was woven out of spider silk, specifically, the silk from more than one million Golden silk orb-weaver spiders:

“Textile expert Simon Peers and fashion designer Nicholas Godley [Godley & Peers] collaborated to create this stunning embroidered cape out of golden spider silk. Both residing in Madagascar, the two paired up to achieve a process that hadn’t been attempted for more than 100 years—they wanted to successfully harvest golden orb spider silk for weaving, and they were quite successful.
Working with a large team of more than 80 people, including spider handlers, they spent three years regularly searching the country’s landscape for golden orb spiders. When an individual spider was captured, it would be harnessed, and then milked to produce anywhere from 100-160 feet—sometimes even up to 400 yards—of thread, and then released back into nature. Peers and Godley estimate having milked approximately 1.2 million of these fascinating creatures.”

The pink-hued Typhochlaena amma is one of five recently discovered tarantula species belonging to the genus Typhochlaena. The newfound species are the smallest tree-dwelling tarantulas so far discovered, at only 2 to 3 centimeters (20 to 30 millimeters) long, Bertani said.
